Developmental Editor Dublin

Developmental editors are the gangbusters of the publishing industry. They clean, sweep and destroy plot holes, character inconsistencies, and other major issues to turn a practically criminal book into a masterpiece.

Do not underestimate the power of collaborating with a developmental editor! In our era of technology, we know that it’s tempting to try and do everything on your own. We are all surrounded by a plethora of apps and programs that make editing so much easier. But the one thing that technological algorithms lack is the human touch.

And that’s what we provide with our developmental editors in Dublin. Our editors have a keen comprehension of the complexity of human perception, which they incorporate into their editing practices, and the experience and communication skills to guarantee a smooth collaboration with you.

At the end of the day, that kind of human understanding cannot be replicated. So go with an actual developmental editor, not an app — you won’t regret it.
